" ... i've lived and traveled around the world - spain, france, england, jamaica, belize, mexico, even CUBA ..." Gavin's quote from above.
I have to admit, Gavin is one up on me in this regard. Crap, when I had just graduated from college I was too busy trying to find a job and pay my rent to do that much traveling. Not that I had any money for an airplane ticket. As for during college, I went to school full-time and then sweated in a manufacturing plant in South Paris, Maine during the summer in order to help pay for that college. Gavin, count your blessings, it sounds like you've had a pretty good life, so far.
Having been fortunate enough to do a fair bit of traveling since those days, I can honestly say that I have never encountered friendlier people than those on Culebra. I am not arguing that Gavin did not experience what he says he experienced. Only he, after all, knows what happened. All I am saying is that either he had some one-in-a-million kind of really bad luck on Culebra, or that his dealings with the good folks on Culebra are a reflection of Gavin, not Culebra.
As far as the original post, Gavin ... be glad it was deleted. It did not portray you as "open-minded, well-traveled, friendly, and always looking for a good time." It made you look like a spoiled little brat with little tolerance for others. You may not be that way at all ... but that's what it portrayed.
